Man charged with classic car’s theft

Print Article

USK — A hawk-eyed Pend Oreille County resident helped foil the theft of a classic automobile earlier this month, according to the sheriff’s office.

Deputies received a report of suspicious activity near the post office on Tuesday, Oct. 2. The caller reported that someone was pushing a rebuilt classic car which belonged to a Cusick resident who was known to be out of town, Sheriff Alan Botzheim said in a news release.

Deputies responded to the post office and found the vehicle parked out front, although no suspects were found in the area. Deputies contacted the owner and confirmed that the vehicle was supposed to be secured in his shop and that no one had permission to take it.

While investigating an unrelated call, deputies encountered John H. Rawls, 45, of Everett, Wash. Botzheim said the ensuing investigation revealed that Rawls had been involved in the vehicle’s theft and was arrested for burglary and theft of a motor vehicle.

A search warrant was later served on Mr. Rawls vehicle and additional stolen items were recovered, Botzheim said.

The investigation is ongoing.
